About Us / A & E Coffee and Tea History: A&E Roastery has a deep passion for fine coffees and teas and wants to pass on that passion to each and every customer. Adam and Emeran Langmaid started roasting in their home in the 1990’s. "We got hooked on the amazing flavor of fresh-roasted coffee. Our passion fed a hobby which became a business. We started roasting half pound amounts in our kitchen for family and friends. Today, we still custom roast every batch in our Amherst, NH roastery location."\n\nCompany Mission: to provide each customer with personalized service and the finest coffee and tea possible in a business that promotes environmental stewardship and economic fairness to growers.\n\nA&E Roastery is committed to bringing you the freshest coffee possible. If you have ever compared the flavor of fresh baked bread to week-old bread, you know the importance of freshness. Coffee, like bread, goes stale, becoming harsh and bitter. To provide our customers with the freshest coffee possible, we ship within four days of roasting. If specified, we will hold the order and add it to our next roast schedule, so it is shipped within twenty four hours of roasting. We work closely with our tea importer to insure the teas we offer are picked and processed in the most careful of manners. The added flavors are of the highest quality, which is apparent in every cup.\n\nEnvironment: Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world and is grown on every continent except Antarctica. Tea is one of the oldest known beverages, and is an important agricultural product for Asia.This provides an amazing opportunity to impact global land-use and agricultural practices. Sustainable agricultural practices improve soil and growing conditions, resulting in better coffee and tea, which is why we buy certified organic and shade grown coffees, and teas. Locally, we recycle everything possible in the cafe, including our coffee grounds. We buy locally within New England when possible.\n\nPersonalized Service: Personalized service means responding to the individual needs of each customer. We can do this by:\n\n * offering only the finest specialty grade Arabica coffees and teas from the finest growing regions in the world;\n * roasting coffee in small batches creating signature World Tour selections, and custom blending to suit your tastes;\n * delivering and shipping our coffees to you fresh from the roaster; and\n * providing the right amount of fresh roasted coffee and teas to match your needs. We will work with each customer to determine the frequency of shipments to insure just the right amount is always on hand!\n\nOur business is devoted to building a personal relationship with each customer. Let us become your personal coffee roaster and tea purveyor.\n\nEconomic Fairness: A&E Roastery feels strongly that supporting the farmers, as well as their environment, is an essential corporate responsibility. Economic fairness benefits us all. We provide farmers a fair price so they can have a living wage and maintain the vitality of their farms.\n\nCharity: As citizens of our local and global community, it is our responsibility to help our neighbors. We donate coffee and tea to local charitable organizations and sponsor fundraisers for national and international causes.
